  3. To Mary, Matthew, Graylon, and family,
    There simply are no words…but may the love and caring of family and friends comfort you at this time.
    My deepest sympathy.

  4. To the Family and Friends of Leneice Castile-Cole

    Please allow me to express my condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. The pain and sorrow experienced during this difficult time can be overwhelming. However, I am often comforted by the words found in God’s word, the Bible. For instance, when grieving the loss of his dear friend Lazarus, the Bible reports that “Jesus gave way to tears.” (John 11:35). What is even more comforting is the fact that Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, and so like Mary and Martha, Lazarus’ sisters, the Bible expresses the hope of the resurrection whereby we may see our loved ones again. (Read John 11:38-44; 5:28, 29). What a marvelous hope.

    May Jehovah God grant you peace during this time and provide comfort for you and your loved ones.

  5. May I extend my most sincere heartfelt condolences to the family of Mrs. Cole! I loved her, always felt like home when I would visit her. She made everyone feel welcomed! I told her once that one of my favorite meals was Fried Chicken, Cabbage and Hot Water Cornbread… and it wasn’t even a week that she told Mary to call me and tell me she made me some Fried Chicken, Cabbage and Hot Water Cornbread!
    Oh how my heart is broken!
    Rest In Heavenly Peace Mrs. Cole!

  6. To the Cole family. I’m truly sorry for your lose. I will continue to lift up your family in my prayer. GOD Bless you all.

  7. To Mary, Matthew, Mike, Graylon and Family,

    Our condolences and deepest sympathy in this difficult time. Although it was some time ago, I was fortunate to meet your Mother on occasion. She was always warm and welcoming to me. No doubt she will be missed. Its obvious from meeting her and knowing you all, she was a great lady and an amazing Mother.

    Bless you all,

    Desmond & Family

  8. To the family, I am feeling your pain and I will always be there for you. I am saying goodbye to my second mom. She always loved me and treated me as part of the family. I will love her always. Rest in peace and God has opened his arms to you. Love you always.

  9. To the family.. my brothers and sisters..My heart is heavy..your mom and mine were close friends all their lives both growing up in Oklahoma, as classmates and ROOMMATES at Langston, University and in Colorado, they followed each other and participated as members at Zion for so, so many years. I will never forget the “Hog-Killing-Parties, of Circle #10, All we share now are the reflections and the memories, which will never be forgotten.
    The blessings…they are together again and telling the stories of their adventures at Langston, aunt Ollie and other members of Circle Number 10 at Zion will be there to recall the days of old. – Your mom and her beautiful friendly smile will be missed.. stay close together. God will take care of you!

  10. Sincere condolences to Mary, Graylon and family. Your Mom was a very special lady who will long be remembered. May God comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead.

  11. The deeper the love, the harder the loss! I am so sorry to learn about the loss of your loved one Leneice. I pray that the loving support of caring and trusting friends will surround you and that you will find peace in knowing how much others care and share your loss. The loss of ones that we love is a pain that is hard to explain. It is a loss that is often hard to accept and harder to let go off. Because of the deep grief that we feel, itś often hard to find the words to say that will provide the comfort that others need, How good to know that simply telling others that we care and are thinking of them can touch a wounded heart and reassure them of our genuine concern. HOw good to know that our loving heavenly father assures us that those who have died will have the chance to live again by means of the resurrection. What a wonderful time that will be. Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in the promises of God. He assures us that our loved ones will live again> John5:28-29!! What a wonderful time that will be!!

  16. To the family of Leniece Cole- Lizzie, Mary, Grayland, and others, I want to extend my deepest sympathies to you in the loss of your mother. There is no LOVE like a mother’s LOVE.
